ELIGIA is a new made complex of two villas for renting, located before the village of Mixorouma – Agios Vasilios Municipal, on the middle of the county of Rethymno at the island of Crete.
The two villas were made by much appetite and careful work of the owners, Eleni and Stelios Koundourakis.
The complex offers two luxurious autonomic villas for renting placed on a plot about 2.000 square meters with a well designed outside space, with a great garden and a swimming pool 15×5 meters distances. It has very easy access, as it is a few meters far aways from the main road, which connects Rethymno – Agia Galini, few meters before the village of Mixorouma, 4 km before Spili, in a very quiet and beautiful area.
The complex stands about 20 Km far away from the city of Rethymno, 30 Km far away from Agia Galini and about 20 Km away from Plakias, which are the main holiday places of south Rethymno. It is very close to the beautiful and famous beaches of south Rethymno, and the visitor travels about the same time to visit each one of them.
Each autonomic villa can host up to six(6) persons. The villas includes kitchen, living room, lounge, three(3) bedrooms, a bathroom, a WC, fireplace, heating, aircondition, TV, large balconies with wonderful view to the round area. As well, the visitor can enjoy a bath in the beautiful swimming pool which is placed on the middle of the complex, or spend nice time at the beautiful garden or to the croft, which is round the two villas. Can also make a barbecue in the beautiful stone build side of the villas.
The owner’s vision behind the construction and running of this villa is translated into total respect of the natural environment and traditional Cretan architecture combined with all the necessary requirements that ensure a pleasant stay with all modern amenities.
The main building of the villa is simple and influenced by Aegean island architecture. It emphasizes on spaciousness and manages to combine elegant decorative elements with the restrictions of traditional minimalism.
The materials used in the construction were selected carefully emphasizing on environmental protection; local stones were used in walls and floors, unprocessed wood, ochre and ecological paints for plastering and floors as well as traditional construction techniques for the exterior and interior plastering, the rooms and floors.
The exact site of the building was selected after careful study in order to achieve optimal results in heating and cooling. Solar energy is also used wherever it is possible.
There are 3 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, an open space for kitchen, dining room, fireplace and sitting room, and an auxiliary room, all covering the 200 square metres and two levels of the villa.
Kitchen: open type, fully equipped with all electrical appliances; dining area, living room with comfortable sofas, fireplace and a WC; one bedroom with en-suite bathroom; verandah with panoramic view and an outdoor dining area.
A stone staircase leads to the first floor (80 square metres) that has two bedrooms, each with its own en-suite bathroom, an auxiliary room (laundry, ironing and linen press); the main corridor leads to the patio (50 square metres) that has an outdoor sitting area. The villa can house comfortably up to 6 people (for more people, prior arrangement is necessary).
All of this is offered in a green clad environment, swamped with flowers, aromatic herbs and trees, an ideal place of calm and relaxation for grown-ups and endless games and playing for children.
